A Stainless Steel Rat is Born by Harry Harrison
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Since I'm reading these in publication order rather than chronological order, I'm quite aware that this is an origin story for our favorite thieving rat and not one that gets overly outrageous and epic.
In that respect, it's fun as hell. Hijinx and heists are fun in any quantity.
I really enjoyed his mentor, Bishop, but alas, all good things...
Basically, I can read these books all day long. Light, fun, and always funny. SF, yes, but it's really all about the glad-eyed thievery, always falling in the muck, and getting up immediately to steal again.
